Tumor necrosis factor inhibitor
Subjects who are about to start on a tumor necrosis factor inhibitor (TNFi) as part of usual care will be recruited. They will have measurements including routine lipids, advanced lipoproteins, and coronary flow reserve (CFR) before and after their TNFi.
Subjects who are about to start TNFi therapy as part of usual therapy will be enrolled. In this study we will provide the drug, certolizumab.
Other Name: Cimzia
Radiation: Stress myocardial perfusion PET
We will measure coronary flow reserve (CFR) using cardiac PET before the patients starts TNFi and 24 weeks after starting TNFi.
Other Name: Cardiac PET
- coronary flow reserve (CFR) measured by cardiac PET [ Time Frame: 24 weeks ]The investigators will compare the CFR of subjects before baseline with their CFR after 24 weeks on TNFi. Each subject serves as their own control.
